MS symptoms: Coordination of Limbs

One must find the funny side of life when living with MS. A few years ago I walked to my car from a sandwich shop, unlocked my car door, opened it, went to get in, and without warning found myself in a heap on the ground. I was shocked, looked around and realized that when I tried to enter the car my upper body went along though my lower body refused to comply. As a result, I’m sure it looked like I threw my upper body at the car while standing in place. I sat on the ground giggling. How silly! I climbed into the car and called my mother laughing. Sometimes MS just makes me laugh!
